I used Graphic 45 papers, buzz and bloom felt, american craft thickers, kaiser pearl strips, kaiser pearls, papermania paper, magnolia doo hickey flourish and leaf die cuts and you can see 6 of the Emerald Faeries, which are the creations from my friend Deb.

Willy and Mia
I'm really happy with how this LO turned out. I used Bo Bunny patterned papers, and some that I don't know what brand they are :(. I also used prima packaging, flourish with a bling vine, american craft thickers, carolee creations alpha stickers, DCWV rub ons, kaiser rub ons, brads, prima clear dot, and I made the flowers out of a dress making pattern. I coloured Willy and Mia using Copics and Stampin Up markers. Aren't they adorable.

and meet........................

And on this layout of my Isla I used the Isla Emerald Faerie image, 2 cute Isla's :) For this LO I used kaiser patterned papers, prima pearl flourish, kaiser embellishments, american craft thickers, making memories glitter alphas, and I also used the tag from one of the Kaiser embellishment packs. The felt flower was made by Amanda Taylor (think it was her ). I thought it suited the layout really well. I coloured the Isla image using copics and stampin up markers.
